  5. You'll have the option to confirm your identity via email, phone or the Microsoft account App. After you've completed this step, you'll need to use an app-specific password to log in via the Outlook App.

  6. Under Security & Privacy > More Security Settings, scroll down and select Create a new app password. Use the newly generated password to log in.
